Welcome

Welcome to our old farmhouse. Over the past year I have learned so much history of this house and the people who lived here. Ninety six years of love, loss, hopes and dreams. Preservation continues and there is always a repair to be done. We are trying to be purest in our preservation as much as we possibly can. I hope you follow along and each week I will try to give you a little history of the house as well as the first owners of the house. I've been lucky enough to find a journal from a Granddaughter who talks about the house as well as her Grandparents. So come follow along and learn about this old house as well as the occupants, old and new.

Velvet

I'm joining Marty tonight at
for Table Top Tuesday. So be sure to stop by
for a visit.
Just a little reminder two days left until the
drawing for the books.
Only rules are, you have to be a follower or
become one. Just let me know in the comments.
I don't know how many of you saw the post
from Cote De Texas last week, but it was on
velvet. She posted some really beautiful
photos of rooms with velvet sofa's, pillows,
and other wonderful things. So while at a
tag sale on Saturday, I found this really
large curtain panel in velvet, screaming
TAKE ME HOME. So home she came and
now proudly covers a little round table I
have in the living room.
I have a piece of brown muslin under it for
a little contrast, but I'm still not totally happy
with the look. It needs something else, but I
can't put my finger on it yet. Any suggestions?
We don't have a TV in this room, really all it is
used for is reading or maybe sitting and relaxing
with a cup of coffee. I have all leather furniture
in this room with lots of pillows and throws
in the winter to snuggle under. I already have
book shelves on one wall and waiting to finish
the other wall, so the room will have more of
a library feel.
An old dictionary I have on the table. A picture of my Father when he was in grade school.
A little tassel to dress up the lamp.
Thanks for visiting.
Bye For Now,
